  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • (the Harmonaholics drop Bill off in the alley)
      Dale: What the hell was that?
      Bill: I joined a men's chorus.
      (Dale muffles a laugh)
      Bill: It's called the Harmonaholics.
      Dale: More like the Assahol--
      Hank: (interrupting) Dale!

    • Hank: So... I noticed a lot of those chorus guys had wives.

    • Hank: Bill, I'm taking you to the one place that can fix whatever you've got going on inside you. You know, the despair and whatnot.

    • Dale: (To Bill) BILL!! Bill, you have to be the stupidest man on the planet to think this is a good idea! Have you seen what you're wearing?! That outfit makes you look like a sequined trainwreck! LOOK AT YOU! You're part of a twelve-headed jackass! This choir is the feces that is produced when shame eats too much stupidity! You people make me envy the deaf and the BLIND!! UNDERWEAR!! MONEY! FAT!! (passes out)

    • Bill: If I didn't go to work tomorrow, I don't think anyone would notice.
      Dale: Yes they would... when there is suddenly enough food to go around. (pause) The point I'm trying to make is that you are fat.

    • Hank: Yep
      Dale: Yup
      Bill: Yep-yep-yep-yep-yep-yep-yep
      Boomhauer: Oh,Um-mm

    • Dale (looking at the choir cutout): Hey, Nancy has the very same blouse.

  • Notes

    • The Harmonaholics are based on the Dallas-based men's chorus the Vocal Majority

    • The first song the Harmonoholics sing, when Bill discovers them, and then sing again later is "When I Fall In Love" by Peabo Bryson. Bill's audition song is "Singin' in the Rain" by Gene Kelly. When Bill gets dropped off they all sing "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow". The first song in the performance where the guys attend is "Happy Together" by The Turtles, and the second is "Summer Nights" from the movie "Grease".

    • When Hank says "We've seen him (Bill) like this before, and it ended with me spending Christmas pulling his head out of the oven", it is referring to the episode "Pretty, Pretty Dresses".

  • Allusions

    • At the end of the performance the Harmonaholics go "EH!" just like The Fonz did in the show "Happy Days".

    • The title of the episode is a reference to the famous saying "it ain't over till the fat lady sings".
